I avoid Irish politics like the clap because it’s boring and low-stakes. I’m going to have to pay some sort of attention to it now, I suppose, since Mr Varadkar is making a nuisance of himself in the Brexit negotiations. Seasoned followers of my political thought (if it can so be termed) know that my preference at this stage is to crater most of the roads, build a wall, impose crippling tolls on the three accessible routes we’d keep and salt the earth as we prepare for the Belfast Airlift. It’s probably why I’m not heading up the negotiations on the Irish border.
In any case, under strict orders to be constructive, nábídána will now occasionally look at Irish matters. Don’t all get excited at once.
